Helping You Make Your American Dream Come True

A high number of employment-based visas are available

On Behalf of | Mar 16, 2022

Are you interested in obtaining a visa based on employment in New Jersey? The Department of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has good news for you. An unusually high number of visas based on employment are now available for you to obtain. The time for you to get the info on this type of visa is now.

Over 140,000 visas are ready to be issued

Visas granted for the purpose of fostering business immigration are now being issued in record numbers. This is due to the fact that over 140,000 family-based visas went unused last year. As a result, your chances of obtaining a visa on the terms of employment in the US are now better than at any other time.

What requirements will you need to meet?

There are a number of stipulations that you will need to meet in order to obtain your employment visa. These include the following:

  • You must be able to continually maintain your ability to be eligible for an adjustment of your status
  • You must already have filed a Form I-485 that is pending. This must be based on a separate I-140 in a classification that is not current, such as an EB-3.
  • You must continue to be currently eligible for the first or second preference category
  • You must have an active priority date that is current in this new category

Even with the record number of visas available, there are a few complex matters to deal with. For example, the number of requirements that must be followed to qualify for a visa is still quite high. The evidence that you require as well as the location you can file will vary depending on where you apply for a visa.
